After a great deal of research I learned that this lock was one of the best to thwart criminal behavior and keep my new road bike safe.
I do sometimes struggle with the lock and key but if i used it more often I would likely get a better system for quickly opening and closing. It is a small price for knowing my bike will be safe. The foldable design makes it easy to lock to anything.
I love the lock for its color, sleek and foldable design, and light weight. I would highly recommend this lock for anyone!
Great product! I always carry it during cycling and trust it to secure my road bike. It is a little bit short for earth lock in some times, but is ok in consideration of easy carrying. Lock hole was stiff initially, but has fitted better before long.
I store my Apex Ti in a frame bag and use it with another U lock. A double would be great, but need to wait to afford it. :-)
